  2. Hello from the northern hemisphere! Do you guys have any experience with this kind of application for FA? It looks pretty easy. I wonder how effective it might be. http://www.biosecurity.govt.nz/files/pests/varroa/control-of-varroa-guide.pdf 2) Application directly on bottom boards (figure 2) Formic acid can be applied directly on bottom boards: • • Using a measuring syringe or a drench gun, squirt 15 ml of 65% acid along each side rail towards the back of the bottom board. • Figure 2 Applying formic acid directly to a bottom board. To avoid killing bees, smoke the entrance to ensure the cluster is above the bottom board. The treatment needs to be reapplied at 1-4 day intervals (depending on evaporation rate), for a total of five or six applications. I don't really understand this statement: "Using a measuring syringe or a drench gun, squirt 15 ml of 65% acid along each side rail towards the back of the bottom board." Thanks. Regards, CRistian
